Hello, I'm John E. Grant.
I'm the Agile Attorney, and I help lawyers suck less.* Or more accurately, I'm an agile attorney, and I help lawyering suck less.
I'm not saying you suck—far from it! I do this work because I LOVE working with smart, passionate professionals who are using their skills to make a difference for their clients and their communities.
I've been there, and I know that work isn't easy.
But I also know that you're on to something when you ask yourself, “Does it really have to be this hard?”
(hint: it doesn't)
Read on to learn more about me, my methods, and whether you and your team could benefit from the work that I do to make law practices profitable, scalable, and sustainable.

I'm a fourth-generation lawyer who spent nearly a decade in the technology industry before going to law school. I approach my work through that lens: I understand the history of how lawyers have worked through the decades, and I also know how modern tools and methods are powering the practices of the future.
Don't think for a second that my family history makes me reverent for the old ways of practicing law. I respect elements of the past, but it had plenty of dark sides.* My tech career taught me the need to question assumptions and cut through traditional BS to make the progress you want to see.
* I once found a phone directory for my great grandfather's firm that had two sections: Lawyers, and Girls. Ugh 🙄
What is this Agile Thing?
Where does Agile come from?
Is Agile the same as Kanban?
It Agile a mindset or a methodology?
Does it work?
Yeah, but does it work for lawyers?
